A Plus Warehouse is your warehouse equipment specialist. We offer chain and electric hoist equipment from well-known names such as Caldwell, Jet, Vestil, Harrington, and Budgit. Our equipment can handle whatever materials you’re moving. Lifting with a hoist is an effective way to move and store bulky materials. From lightweight to heavy-duty to extras such as lifting magnets, A Plus Warehouse has it all.
Choosing the right product can make all the difference in your place of work. We offer chain version that offers plenty of lifting power. Several of our most capable products can safely handle up to 6,000 pounds yet are compact enough to fit over a work bench. A hallmark of our manual products is that they commonly feature as few parts as possible to give you a high quality yet economical lifting solution.
An electric hoist is a great option for your lifting needs. We have electric models in single and three phase arrangements to provide the ideal amount of lifting power. Three phase material lifts and hoists are efficient, as there is much less electric current drawn than in single phase units. This allows the motor to run cooler and last longer. Single phase is available for electric hoists, but capacity is limited. We offer constant speed as well as dual speed for your convenience.
Buying a hoist isn’t as simple as it seems. You need to combine all the correct pieces and sizes to make it work for your industrial warehouse or facility. At A Plus Warehouse, we make it easy to order all your necessary material hoisting equipment. We will not finalize an order with incompatible lift equipment! We provide you with safe, convenient purchasing every step of the way.
Once you have chosen a proper hoist, your next step is deciding on a trolley. Electric models support trolleys that are either push-type or powered. Push trolleys may be more affordable, but powered trolleys are what you need for high volume applications and are well worth the added cost.
We have jib cranes and gantry cranes that you can use to mount your hoist. A jib crane is a fixed device that has a pillar with an L-beam. Simply mount the trolley and hoist onto the L-beam, add an end clamp, and the beam can rotate around the pillar. A gantry crane has an L-beam between two uprights on casters. With a gantry, you can move your load, or move the gantry to where the load is to pick it up.
The final piece of equipment you need are slings and other under the hook lifting devices. You will rarely use a hook to do the actual picking up; if you do, you may be handling your equipment incorrectly. These accessories can make your lifting safer:
Don’t forget to check out our other material handling equipment. Once you lift your heavy materials they’ll need to be transported via a platform cart or industrial truck. Make sure you have a hand truck, pallet truck, or conveyor system in place to handle the weight you’ll be moving.
